Something to think about..
The soil isn’t what it used to be and I’m sure most of you are aware of this. In the last 50 years the loss of nutrients in the soil have been depleting and unfortunately due to pollution, and environmental upsets it will continue. We are not getting as many of the vitamins and minerals we used to from our fruits and vegetables. We are required to consume more to make up for it. For example, 5 apples today nutritionally would probably equal 1 apple 50 years ago. However, there are things we can do to supplement these issues as we try and fix them. You can buy organic, buy from local co-ops, support your local farmers and grow your own organic fruits and vegetables. The fresher the produce, the more nutrient dense it will be.
Eating lots of fresh produce is really beneficial, however, juicing that produce is also an excellent way to maximize the vitamin and mineral intake for your body. Mineral supplementation is also another option, but, I would recommend the fresh fruits and vegetables first and foremost.
